Ascites in Ovarian Carcinoma – Reliability and Limitations of Cytological Analysis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.230
Pages: 
236–40
Synopsis: 
Peritoneal cytology of ascitic fluid is highly specific but has relatively low sensitivity, particularly in case of endometrioid ovarian carcinoma. In order to increase sensitivity, peritoneal cytology should be combined with monoclonal antibodies and other biochemical and immunohistochemical markers.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The objectives of this study were to examine the validity of ascitic fluid cytology in the detection of pathological findings, to examine the percentage of false positive and false negative results in the cytology of ascitic fluid and to determine the validity of peritoneal cytology in relation to the histopathological type of the ovarian tumour.
